This edition of our newsletter is focused on our annual meeting coming up on Thursday, November 12 from 6:00 -8:00 pm. This will be our first annual meeting that will be held virtually, but we are expecting an engaged audience and a lot of good discussion, like we have had in the past during our in-person meetings.
This meeting, held a bit later than usual to let the craziness of the election season pass, will focus heavily on our 2021 legislative priorities. We have a confirmed panel of West Virginia lawmakers who will be participating in our discussion and taking your questions.
Please take 5 minutes and complete our Legislative Priorities survey. This will allow us to gain insight on what you would like to see us focus on and what our member groups are working on. To help us compile our priorities for the 2021 session, please submit your survey by November 9.
Registration for the meeting is required, so please share our registration link with your friends and families, and on your social media to help increase participation. We hope to see you all there!
